8) Continue around the far end of the part buildings and into the Long Walk next to the river outlet. Continuing along here you come to the main tourist sights of the Spanish arch and the Galway Museum.
9) Left over the river bridge turn left again over the small bridges that thread through to the area of open ground known as the Claddagh (Who is the Lord of the Rings?)
10) Once across the bridges head up Priory Road and right down Fairhill. You will see a small park to your left (Fr Burke ' s park). Exit in the top right corner.
11) A small wiggle through will bring you into the centre of the new Claddagh area. Some great new lively shops here. Turning right onto William street west which soon becomes Sea Road.
12) Turn right onto The Crescent. This is a very well-appointed area with nice townhouses and gardens.
13) Turn Right again onto St Mary ' s road (signposted to Clifden). Continue on this road for about a Km, as it become Newcastle road, passing the hospital.
14) Turn Right again into University road, past UCG (university college Galway) and onto the Cathedral.
15) After a look at the Cathedral cross over the bridge on the far side known as Salmon Weir bridge. (you may see some !)
16) Finally once over the bridge turn right for the last time and follow the river (lovely area this) back to the Spanish Arch.
Hope you enjoy it !
